Other artists' masterpieces, including Claude Monet, Maurice Denis, Pablo Picasso, Odilon Redon, Paul Gauguin and Andre Derain's works were also displayed along with Emdadian's child models.
Davoud Emdadian was born in 1944 in Tabriz, Iran. In 1975, he received his BA and went to Paris to continue his studies and education. Emdadian received his degree from Sorbonne in Visual Arts.
He received more than tens international prizes. His paintings are mostly in large pieces, in oil on canvass and influenced by the mid-19 century spirit of the realism school. But the nature of his works, especially in his "Tree" collections was special, unique and symbolic.
His trees in fact symbolize his admiration for nature and life, glorify the power and perfection of life and supernatural powers and manifest tranquility, and stillness. Sometimes his trees were mystic and grotesque.
Emdadian died of cancer in Paris in 2004 and was laid to rest at the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.
